Grilled Barbecue and Rosemary Pork Chops

Have I mentioned I absolutely love having a grill?  It’s a simple and clean way of cooking, just the way I like my food!  I hadn’t tried pork chops on the grill yet so decided to last night.  I knew I had barbecue sauce (from Fairway Market) at home but wanted to add a little something else. I don’t use fresh herbs that often but walked by them at the store and the rosemary just caught my eye!  So that’s how dinner was decided last night.  I may or may not have Googled on my phone what herbs go best with barbecue….hey I’m learning!

Grilled Barbecue and Rosemary Pork Chops

  • Organic Center Cut Bone-In Pork Chops
  • Barbecue Sauce
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Fresh Rosemary

I told you this was simple!  Coat the chops with barbecue sauce, salt, and pepper.  Sprinkle rosemary on the side that will be facing up on the grill.  Cook over medium heat for 10-12 minutes.  Flip the pork chops and sprinkle more rosemary on the other side.  Cook for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the pork chops are the slightest pink in the center.


I decided I wanted sweet potatoes as a side.  I remembered Juli’s recipe for “Cinnamon Bacon Backyard Sweet Potatoes”  on PaleOMG and decided to make a spin on those.  I replaced the cinnamon with rosemary and they came out delicious!  I roasted up some broccoli too to complete the perfect fall dinner!


I have to also show the picture of Andy’s plates.  He likes his food on all separate dishes so I told him I have to get him an adult separator plate.  He also doesn’t like sweet potatoes…have to work on that!

What a great dinner.  I have a ton of rosemary left over now.  Anyone have any good dishes that use it?
